SECTION 30945-30949



30945.  The purpose of this article is to establish a program for
integrated watershed management to improve water quality, protect and
restore habitat and fisheries, reduce flooding, control erosion and
sedimentation, and improve local water supply reliability through
better groundwater monitoring, river corridor recreation, forest land
and fuel management, and hydropower management.



30946.  The California Environmental Protection Agency shall enter
into a memorandum of understanding with the Resources Agency to
ensure that the program established under this chapter is coordinated
with other programs administered by those agencies, including, but
not limited to, the grant process set forth in Section 30947. The
memorandum of understanding shall establish a stakeholder advisory
process to assist in setting priorities and allocating funds. The
memorandum of understanding shall be completed and executed on or
before April 30, 2003.


30947.  (a) The Integrated Watershed Management Program is hereby
established. Upon appropriation by the Legislature, funds allocated
to the program may be used by the board, subject to the terms of the
memorandum of understanding executed pursuant to Section 30946 to
award grants to public agencies and nonprofit organizations for the
development of local watershed management plans that meet the
requirements of subdivision (c) of Section 79078 of the Water Code,
and for the implementation of watershed protection and water
management projects that include one or more of the following
elements:
   (1) Stormwater capture and treatment.
   (2) Nonpoint source pollution reduction, management, and
monitoring.
   (3) Groundwater recharge and management projects.
   (4) Water banking, exchange, and reclamation, and improvement of
water quality.
   (5) Vegetation management to improve watershed efficiency, aquatic
and terrestrial habitat, the creation and enhancement of wetlands,
and the acquisition, protection, and restoration of open space.
   (6) Planning and implementation of multipurpose flood control
programs that protect property and improve water quality and
stormwater capture and percolation, and protect or improve wildlife
habitat.
   (7) Watershed management planning and implementation.
   (8) Demonstration projects to develop new water treatment
distribution and nonpoint source pollution control methods.
   (9) Erosion sediment control and stream enhancement projects, and
permit coordination programs to facilitate watershed restoration
projects that implement board approved management measures for
polluted runoff.
   (10) Monitoring, collection, and analysis of water quality and
pollutant transport in groundwater and surface water.
   (11) Native fisheries enhancement or improvement projects, and
projects to restore other threatened species.
   (12) Water conservation, water use efficiency, and water supply
reliability.
   (13) An enforceable waste discharge program, by a person who is
subject to Article 4 (commencing with Section 13260) of Chapter 4 of
Division 7 of the Water Code and for whom the board has a name and
address, that implements best management practices and includes all
of the following:
   (A) A clear description of how a project will achieve and maintain
water quality standards.
   (B) A monitoring component that assesses the effectiveness of
adopted practices.
   (C) Submission of a report of waste discharge to the appropriate
regional water quality control board.
   (b) Upon completion of the project, the grantee shall submit a
report to the board that summarizes the completed activities and
indicates whether the purposes of the project have been met. The
report shall include information collected by the grantee in
accordance with the project monitoring and reporting plan, including,
but not limited to, a determination of the effectiveness of the
project in preventing or reducing pollution and the results of the
monitoring program. The board shall make the report available to the
public, watershed groups, and federal, state, and local agencies.




30948.  Consistent with Section 30947, the board shall establish an
accelerated selection and contracting procedure for projects that
meet all of the following criteria:
   (a) The project is part of an approved watershed management plan
consistent with Section 30947.
   (b) The project is fully permitted and ready to be implemented.
   (c) Funding for the project includes matching funds or services
donated from nonstate sources.



30949.  No more than 50 percent of the funds made available to the
board for the purposes of this article shall be used for the purposes
of Section 30948.
